Does that eliminate Donna? Or did she shake a tambourine once upon a time?

Singing is performing!

If you limit it to people the band considered to have been part of the band, and who logically the band as we know it couldn't have existed without, you do get 13.

Counting Hornsby, or no?

What about Ned? Do you count Hunter and Barlow both? This is too ambiguous.

Well, it's not my quiz -- it's Lou's -- so I don't know if it's "right." But I get 13, and yeah, I count Hunter and Barlow. Not Ned or Bruce.

Wow--if there's this much discussion of the first question, it's going to take us forever to do the whole quiz!

I said "13", not "all 13", so I don't mean to assume any authoritative stance as to who was and who wasn't. FWIW, I included Hunter because they did in the list of band members on American Beauty. As I said in my intro, I largely stop paying attention after 1978 or so, so I did include Bruce in my mental count, but perhaps naively. Personally, I wouldn't include Ned any more than I would Martin Fierro, but anyone who does clearly deserves the points if the quiz is intended to test how obsessed one is.

Again, do you count Donna? If you consider that singing....

Geez, bluedevil, of course you count Donna. You can't knock off for quality, or you'd have to figure out which percentage of the time Bob messed up lyrics/played slide/sang in some ridiculous cheesy way, and knock that off, so that Bob would be, what, 87.5 percent of a band member?

Actually, applying that logic to everyone (individually and in tandem), I'm afraid we might have only, what, 80 percent of a band? 50 percent? Love 'em anyway. Donna too :-)
